Newcastle captain Lascelles: Benitez definitely a special one


Newcastle United captain Jamaal Lascelles is enjoying his football under manager Rafa Benitez.

Newcastle are finishing the season strongly after reacting with positive focus to the relegation threat that hung over the club until mid-February.

“Rafa Benitez is always calm even when we are losing at St James’ Park and it’s a bit hectic,” said 24-year-old Lascelles to the Mirror.

“You might see him sweating on the sidelines but inside I can guarantee he will be the calmest man in the stadium.

“He’s been there in these tense situations so many times before. He’s managed in big European finals in the Champions League and Europa League, so he knows what he’s doing.

“He is definitely, definitely a special manager.”
